as some might know already


if you use a ssl cert on your site etc TLS 1.0 &  TLS 1.1 encryption is no longer supported ,


(SSL 1.0, 2.0 was unsupported since  2011 and 3.0 was unsupported since 2015 ) you shouldn't of been using this encryption at all


TLS 2.0 & TLS 3.0 are ok


and from January 2020 will be starting to remove TLS 1.0 &  TLS 1.1 from most browsers and fully be removed by March 2020
 is a good site to test your site etc is good site to show how to change your settings

Partially incorrect here.


TLS 2.0 and TLS 3.0 don't exist. I think you're meaning SSL 2.0 and SSL 3.0 which are incredibly insecure and should be disabled also (this will give you an F in SSLLabs).


TLS 1.2 and TLS 1.3 (if your server supports it) should be the only protocols enabled along with secure ciphers.


If you're using Cloudflare, to mitigate you need to go into SSL/TLS, click on the "Edge Certificates" tab and set "Minimum TLS Version" to TLS 1.2.


Note - by doing this you're effectively disabling support for older browsers and operating systems.
